Morning in the Mountains: The Blessing of Challenges

by Mike Poff

Mornings around here start out with a nearly peculiar amount of peace and quiet. Around 5am inside our mountain home near the Crest of the Blue Ridge little stirs in the wee hours. That is except my wife Pam who by my wake-up has been rolling for an hour or more.  Her fleeting fingers in […]

The ABCs of Being a SAHD

by Chris Singer

My 14-month-old daughter Tessa’s favorite book right now is Chicka Chicka ABC. It’s a classic children’s book by Bill Martin Jr. about the letters climbing up the coconut tree. My daughter loves it, and not just because I read it in a really silly way to her. She’s starting to notice these letters all over […]

by Bboisvert

I often think to myself, “Am I expecting too much?” It seems as though the answer would be a simple one after so many years of parenting, but no such luck! Watching my children grow and develop through the years has given me something I couldn’t possible put into the right words but it hasn’t […]

My Life As A Home School Dad

by Dave Roller

When I write, I like to start with a killer opening, a real attention getter that has the reader salivating to see more.  This will have to suffice. What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the term home schooling?  What images come to your mind?  Does it sound abnormal to […]

Well, for the first time I had to make a decision to have my daughter skip a basketball game in favor of her dance team practice. Did I like to make this decision…no. Was it the right decision…yes. I say it was the right decision, but I am not sure I really believe that. For […]

How To Cook A HotDog

by Shannon Carpenter

Welcome to the world of the Stay At Home Dads or as I like to call it, Thunderdome. When I was a new stay at home dad, I had no idea what I was doing.  I’ll admit it, I can man up and take the blow.  I was ignorant about all things kids.  That’s not […]
